    Description

    Details

    From the same design and lutherie team that brought the Alchemist and Livingston, we now get this new limited run model. There was one 6 string made and we loved it and requested it in a 4 string. What we got with this tenor exceeds our expectations in beauty and tone. The gorgeous Hawaiian koa tenor, asymmetrical body. and unique slotted headstock really set it apart. 

    The attention to detail, unique and artistic design, and precision craftsmanship make this one of the nicest ukes ever. On top of that is the wonderful "open" sound and excellent balance.

    Take a listen to a "dry" sound sample from Corey playing this custom koa tenor.

    Pictures AND video show the exact ukulele available here. This ukulele is strung with a plain low G set but we can set it up high G or with a different low G if you prefer that.

    Our sound samples are recorded for true reference and have no alteration or enhancement. Use quality playback for the most accurate listening.

    One interesting aspect of this ukulele is the headstock can double as a bottle opener. We suggest you don't use it for that but that was the original design purpose. This ukulele also includes a separate Rebel bottle opener as well. Drink responsibly :)

    Peng and the Rebel team usually approach their custom line with a unique concept. This is what they had to say about the Elysium.

    Ludwig Wittgenstein, an Austrian-British philosopher and one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century, once said  

    “Death is not an event in life: we do not live to experience death. If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.”

    He also said

    “If people never did silly things nothing intelligent would ever get done.”

    The Rebel Elysium was inspired by his work. The result was the making of ukulele that would live an eternal life with beauty and silliness.

    This companies desire for creative experimentation lead to another incredible ukulele design that both sounds awesome and looks gorgeousl!

    Our goal as a store is to carry the absolute best ukuleles in the world. We are proud to offer you this ukulele, not just because it's beautiful, but because of it's precise intonation, amazing sound, and effortless playability.

    This includes a hardshell tenor case and Oasis humidifier. This is a limited run so don't hesitate to add this amazing custom to your collection.
